L531088 is reported as being a COPO. But it has old, shaky provenance and non-OE drivetrain.

With not one other VN COPO Camaro known I'd say the jury is still out on Van Nuys COPO Camaros.

I believe Kurt has a copy of the CBC on that car so maybe he can chime in.

Is this the CK Spurlock car? I have a color copy of that around here somewhere. Years ago I was told that per Tonowanda records there were 7 L-72 Camaro coded engines shipped to the LOS plant for production use. There was a second possible LOS built COPO that popped up about 6-7 years ago with a CBC and it was similar to the Spurlock one but more complete, and only a few numbers off from that car.  I think Alan knows of that car..............RatPack.................

Just found Helflin on the map.  Many years ago when I worked the race we would go into Oxford and buy our supplies at Wal Mart.

I know you are asking about Camaros but it is similar situation with 427 Chevelles.
At one time it was thought that all 427 COPO Chevelles were built at Baltimore as all the documentation found was on Bal built cars.
One 427 Chevelle has been found with good doc and was built in Fremont CA assembly plant
Also some documentation has been found that shows Kansas assembly plant may have built a few

The broadcast sheet for the Spurlock looks reasonable, but I don't have a great pic of it.

I don't know anything about the other car...
